I've been all over the map on this one, and really need some help.

I have two columns of data: 1 column can be possibly anything, either numeric, alphanumeric, or alpha only (VINS or vehicle numbers). The adjacent column are four different types of vehicles. I've tried concatentating the two to try and count the unique combinations (a truck maybe used more than once during the day), which I can get unique values, but not unique values for each type. Also, the range sizes are variable, but no more that 65 rows. An example:

5CZ975 Van

25RW04 Straight

5CZ975 Van

ZJ6026 Van

So, the result I am after is 2 vans, 1 straight truck

I found an array in a another post, but it is not working properly (see cell F7 in the attached):

=sum(if(frequency(if($b$2:$b$18=$f7,$a$2:$a$18),$a$2:$a$18)<>"",1,0))

**ctrl+shift+enter**

Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance.
